"The Trafalgar Square concert 'Contemporary Music, English Roots' will be staged on Saturday April 25 from 12.30pm to 6pm. Artists include singer/songwriter Seth Lakeman, violinist Eliza Carthy and folk singer Bishi."

So exactly why was this bumped down into BS?

Although folk music is a major part of the event, it is not the only thing on. There is an event at the Globe and Boris J"ohnson will hop on an iconic Routemaster bus to visit London's historic Leadenhall Market for food and drink-based festivities on April 23, after flying the St George's Cross outside City Hall."

The remaining events are all part of the folkloric nature of the occasion.

Yes, but not necessarily music based.

Why isn't he going on a bendy bus? He promised to abolish them, but they're still around.

Anyway, what's the point of celebrating England when open cast mining is destroying the ground we stand on, and all the history that was contained in it?

Now if ARTHUR SCARGILL were celebrating St George's Day, I'd be there. Along with the Turks from St George's country, and a wicker man of bonus guzzling bankers.

But folklore is an above the line concept. And anyway an item does not have to be 100% music (or other above the line topic) to be above the line

Any Music involved for St Georges Day would have to be ENGLISH , and EVERYONE knows there is NO English Folk Music - THAT's why its below the line Richard !
So those of us who still perform English music are still the Non Existent Minority !

Come and celebrate it in Dorset. I hold fears the London party could get out of hand. We do it in our own traditional fashion and I love it.

I sent a letter to our local newspaper this time last year suggesting that we adopt St George for a national holiday in England. The response? Lacklustre and negative.

It seems there are all sort of historical and political objections - in other words - don't bother. And alternatives to St George fared no better under scrutiny.

A year (almost) on and I think St George is our only bet. If we don't back St George as the basis of an English equivalent to St Patricks Day or Burns Night, then we have will nothing; and English people will continue the road to becoming sad second hand Americans.

Let's underline that there's nothing wrong with being the real thing, but English people aping Americans - is really pathetic.

It's Boris Johnson's idea and you're worried about the BNP?

I can't imagine what Eliza Carthy thinks she's doing helping that Thatcherite sleazeball with his PR exercise.

It's a good thing that it's happening at all, though a shame that it clashes with the 175th Tolpuddle Martyrs Commemoration which takes place simultaneously a couple of miles away with Ms Carthy's dad, Billy Bragg and Leon Rosselson guesting. I predict mass rushing about between venues.

Jack Camping - I can't imagine what Eliza Carthy thinks she's doing helping that Thatcherite sleazeball with his PR exercise.

The more we celebrate ENGLAND's Saint Day, the less the BRITISH National Party can claim our flag. Don't confuse Tories with the BNP please. By the way - I'm no Tory voter nor sympathiser, but I really dislike the BNP, and anything done reasonably to show that it's an ENGLISH day is fine with me. My Significant othet half and I will celebrate being English on 23rd. April, as we have done for the last 31 years.
